Silk Lace 20/2 100% Silk by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in color Passion Fruit; Miyuki seed beads size 6 (4 mm diameter) color 592 Ivory Ceylon
What was your inspiration?
This variegated lace yarn inspired me to design for this wide-angle construction, where the color runs would be featured without taking away from the lace.
What are you most proud of?
This shawl/wrap can be worn in so many attractive ways.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The beaded lace border is worked at the same time as the body of the shawl, and frames the shallow triangular garter stitch area on all three sides. Beads are placed on stitch loops with a small crochet hook and knitted in as needed.
